Product Description

Eastman Aspira™ copolyester EB062 is a resin specifically developed for extrusion blown bottles where aesthetics such as high clarity and gloss, coupled with design flexibility, drive demand. Compared to commonly used materials, Aspira EB062 runs on most standard processing equipment. Extremely high melt strength makes the resin an excellent choice when manufacturing large bottles. Aspira EB062 is certified to NSF/ANSI Standard 51 for Food Equipment Materials.

Aspira EB062 is cleared for various food contact applications (including contact with most alcoholic beverages) by FCN No. 1234 as described in the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Inventory of Effective Food Contact Substance Notifications and may be used in full compliance with the United States Federal Food and Drug, and Cosmetic Act, provided that it is used within the limitations set forth for FCN 1234.

This product has received a Platinum level Material Health Certificate from the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute. A Material Health Certificate is awarded to products that meet the Material Health requirements of the multi-attribute Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Product Standard. The Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute is a nonprofit organization that administers the publicly available Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Product Standard, which provides designers and manufacturers with criteria and requirements for continually improving product materials and manufacturing processes. The Material Health Certificate provides manufacturers with a trusted way to communicate their efforts to identify and replace chemicals of concern in their products.
